Prepare to fly further, faster and higher now that the sequel to the blockbuster CAPTAIN MARVEL is a go. This time around for the sequel, the originals co-writers and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will not return to helm the sequel or write it. A staff writer from the upcoming Disney + WANDAVISION, Megan McDonnell, is set to pen a script for a follow-up to the 2019 movie that starred Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.
Full details about the plot have not yet been revealed but it has been noted that the superhero movie will go from the 1990s into present day.
The original CAPTAIN MARVEL had several writers at the helm including the co directors as well as Nicole Perlman, Meg LeFauve and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
McConnell is a relatively new writer with WandaVision being her first major credit. The show brings back Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Avengers heroes Wanda Maximoff and the Vision, respectively. The show, currently in production, also brings back CAPTAIN MARVEL kid character of Monica Rambeau, now an adult played by Teyonnah Parris. In the comics, Rambeau was an iteration of Captain Marvel.
We have been waiting for more information on the upcoming Greg Berlanti produced GREEN LANTERN series for HBO Max. Information more specifically as to which members of the Green Lantern corp, who would be starring in the series, plot and so much more. Thanks to the current Television Critics Association winter press tour we are not beginning to have some of the answers fall into place.
HBO Max’s head of originals, Sarah Aubrey, laid out a few details as to what the show in itself would be about. Aubrey says that the series “will span several decades and focus on origin stories and two major Green Lanterns on Earth.” It was also mentioned that it will feature Sinestro, a popular Green Lantern villain.
During the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, Aubrey said they are in the “early stages of talking to him about.” She continued that it “will span several decades and focus on origin stories of two major Green Lanterns on earth.” She added it will also feature Sinestro, a major villain from the comics.
Sinestro is a former member of the Green Lantern corp. who eventually turns evil. He was played by Mark Strong in the 2009 DC movie that starred Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan. Now the question which as of right now is up to interpretation is which Green Lantern members will be the focus.
There are many fans who would not mind seeing another iteration of Hal Jordan, possibly Jessica Cruz, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and potentially John Stewart. Stewart has been a hot subject for many fans of Berlanti’s Arrowverse on the CW. The reason being many have been hoping to see John Diggle played by David Ramsey pick up the ring and become the guardian of Earth.
There have been many potential clues or Easter Eggs as to whether or not Diggle actually is John Stewart. clues such as his stepfather, Gen. Roy Stewart (played by Ernie Hudson) who was introduced in ARROW. Along with a reference in which Barry Allen from Earth-90 (played by John Wesley Shipp) looks at Diggle and mentions he does not have in ring on in the ELSEWORLDS crossover event.
Stay tuned for more information about this show as it develops.
Many people believed that it would NEVER happen and that the worlds of the Arrowverse on The CW and the DC Film Universe would ever intertwine or cross over. Well now that has all been SHATTERED.
In the fourth episode of the CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover, the two met as Ezra Miller’s THE FLASH met Grant Gustin’s THE FLASH. This happened as Oliver Queen, now as The Spectre gave Barry Allen a boost in his speed potential and allowed him to run into the speed force. While in there he is taken to the STAR Labs cortex and is met up by Miller.
The two Flashes then jokingly banter back and forth in disbelief before Miller disappears and then Gustin returns to the speed force.
One of the most highly anticipated films of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was the long awaited sequel to DOCTOR STRANGE with DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS. Not only was its star Benedict Cumberbatch returning as the sorcerer supreme but its director Scott Derrickson was also set to once again take the helm.
Well one part of that no longer seems to be the case. According to a new report from Variety, Scott Derrickson has officially departed the project as a director. Derrickson, however, will remain a producer on the film.
“Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences,” Marvel said in a statement to Variety, adding, “We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.”
According to the report, Marvel Studios is already searching for a replacement director, as filming on the project is expected to begin in May.
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
